A psycho escapes from a mental hospital, seeking out the college student he had seen on a tour of the facility earlier in the day. Dominic Purcell is an imposing presence but he isn't used particularly well here--he has barely any dialogue and his part could easily have been played by anyone from the WWF stable. While this movie's premise is solid enough Escapee has some of the worst dialogue ever written by sentient human beings. The scenes between the female detective and her boss are cringe-worthy examples of writing that would earn a failing grade in a Screenwriting 101 class. They're seriously that bad. The movie is a lot better when nobody has any lines. Unfortunately that isn't nearly often enough.
